Goal

For Reports Server, it was assumed that the outgoing SMTP mail server runs on default port 25 in version 9.0.2.x and 9.0.4.0. There was no provision to specify a port number in case the SMTP mail server was running on a different port other than port 25.

So, it was not possible to connect to an SMTP server that runs on port other than 25 from reports server in 9.0.2 and 9.0.4.0.
